Lab Discovery Behind Brighter TV, Computer Displays

Berkeley Lab startup Nanosys reached a milestone this fall by manufacturing enough material for its Quantum-Dot Enhancement Film™ (QDEF) to move forward with plans to produce televisions, computers, tablets and smart phones with more vivid color and lower power consumption than competitors. QDEF already enables the newly released Kindle Fire HDX7’s high color accuracy. TVs utilizing QDEF technology were demonstrated at the 2013 CE Week consumer electronics show. Nanosys’ Milpitas plant is capable of producing enough quantum dots to build five million big-screen TVs annually. More>
